Eliminate Jaw Pain for Good

We know that an aching jaw is something that can affect your entire life. It can make it hard to eat, talk, and even sleep! But what’s even worse than the pain itself is not knowing what is causing it or how to fix it.

At Dental Design Studio, we specialize in treating the source of your jaw pain so you can get back to living your best life — without the pain.

Don’t suffer any longer. Schedule an appointment today!

What is TMJ/TMD?

TMJ Syndrome (or TMD) is a disorder that causes pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and surrounding muscles. This specific joint connects your lower jaw to your skull and acts as a “hinge” in your mouth.

Pain can occur when you yawn, bite, chew, or even when opening and closing your mouth. The causes of TMJ syndrome/TMD differ for each individual. Some of the most common are teeth grinding, arthritis, poor posture, stress, jaw injury, and even genetic predisposition.

TMJ/TMD Symptoms

Are you wondering if you suffer from TMJ/TMD?

TMJ/TMD is actually quite common—and also quite treatable. Symptoms of TMJ/TMD include:

  • Clicking or grinding in your jaw
  • Pain in your jaw (especially when opening your mouth or chewing)
  • Headaches (especially around the temples)
  • Neck pain and upper back pain
  • Stiffness or difficulty moving your jaw fully

If you are experiencing any of these ongoing symptoms, give us a call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pandher!

TMJ/TMD Solution

Think you have TMD? Not to worry. There are jaw pain care solutions. At Dental Design Studio we offer:

  • Thermoplast Night Guards – Night guards help protect your teeth from nighttime grinding which can wear down your teeth and cause jaw pain.
  • Facebow and Bite Registration – A facebow is an instrument that records the relationship of the maxilla to the hinge axis of rotation of the mandible. It allows a maxillary cast to be placed in an equivalent relationship on the articulator.
  • Therapeutic Botox – Botox can be used to temporarily relax muscle contractions in the face and jaw area.
